I have a professional yet laid back style that attracts clients that are seeking something a little bit different for their wedding. I spin a wide variety of music, and no two weddings are exactly alike. I love to learn a bit about what the bride and groom like and don’t like and build the soundtrack to the evening from those ideas. From being a club dj for over 20 years, I have learned what works and what doesn’t work in a huge variety of settings. Now focusing on Weddings for the past 3 years, I have learned the in and outs of a proper reception time-line and how to handle almost any situation that can arise.

Two things I don’t do is I don’t get on the mic and hype up your crowd, nor will I get out there and teach them how to do the latest line dance craze, if that is what you’re looking for go and hire a Davis dj. If you would like a dj that actually knows how to blend and mix songs smoothly, get on the mic only when appropriate and someone that will work out a perfect soundtrack to your wedding that matches you and your guests tastes then I am your dj.

Rusty was absolutely incredible at our wedding - he was AWESOME!!! We met with him twice before our wedding to discuss music choices and the timeline. He had so many helpful suggestions for both. I had a couple of favorite songs that I wanted to play at the wedding, and he ended up playing one when I walked down the aisle (which looked wonderful) and another one when we cut the cake (which also looked wonderful). Our playlist was so unique and so perfectly tailored to us. We had all of our favorite love songs, classics, Jewish music, and then tons of dance music. He really kept the wedding going and everyone happy. Everyone was complimenting the music all night - and one of my friends that recently got married actually said she wished he could have done her wedding too! And to top it all off, he is just such a nice guy - an absolute pleasure to work with - I felt very comfortable with him right from the start. He couldn't have done a better job - a perfect 5.0 across the board.

We found Rusty through a recommendation by DJ Mac in DC. By all accounts, Rusty was amazing. We wanted our wedding to have an element of romance and tradition during the earlier hours, including the dinner and a stomping dance party into the night…and that’s what he delivered. A few weeks before the wedding we met with Rusty, gave him a playlist that included specific songs we wanted to hear and talked about our style. From there he did it all. Our wedding was non-stop dancing for nearly three hours - guests said they had never danced so much or had so much fun at a wedding, ever. Rusty is fantastic - he's fun to work with and has incredible skill. We definitely recommend him for a wedding, party etc...

We had a fantastic experience with Russell and I would highly recommend him to anyone. In our meeting and communications prior to the wedding, he had great ideas for timing and spacing out the different "events" (intros, cake cutting, toasts, etc.) during the reception. He also was really helpful in identifying songs for the special dances and whether we would play the whole song, fade-out, invite others to join in, etc.

At the reception itself, everything was fantastic. The sound system was set up very well for cocktails and dinner (they were in separate rooms, so he had to have additional speakers). He played great mellow yet classy music during cocktail hour and dinner and didn't throw in anything that was cheesy or in any way detracted from the mood. After dinner, he really read the crowd and started off with some older hits that got everyone up and dancing, moved into the 80's (which I love) and then played some more modern dance hits later in the night. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and people kept commenting on how much fun they were having. That is attributable in large part to Russell's great music choices and his ability to read the crowd.

One of the most refreshing things about Russell, compared to other DJ's I've seen at weddings, is that he didn't feel the need to get on the microphone to hear himself talk. Much like a DJ at a club, he kept the music going without stopping to talk to the crowd in between (i.e.: no cheesy "Is everyone having fun tonite? Lets get this party started"). The next day at brunch, our guests couldn't stop commenting on how great our DJ was.
